Bought this veh new and have never been disappointed. Admittedly, it's not for everyone given that it doesn't trade off any of its sporting qualities for the sake of practicality. But that's actually what I like about it. I prefer a driver's veh over just having a grocery getter. The FX is the kind of veh that you really have to know why you are buying it. For me, I love the styling, speed, technology, and handling. It's hard to get those qualities in a larger vehicle, and among those that offer them, I think the FX45 does it best. I absolutely love it. On top of everything else, it's been extremely reliable.

I have only one word: awesome. I was waiting for 6 years to buy this dream. Finally, I bought used 2006 model. About reliability and features too early for me to talk. I think it's the best value for the money. Originally was thinking FX35, after driving FX45 I had no more questions. Don't complain about cargo space, you can buy a truck, need more space for kids, buy a van. Thanks to Infiniti for my dream!

After 2 1/2 years of driving my FX45 I am still in love with it. It is a driver's dream! You either love the styling or hate it, I like the "Bionic Cheetah" moniker. This is not for Soccer Moms or folks who haul a bunch of junk. Get a Suburban for that. This is much more a sports car than truck and will hold its own against most everything under $70.000 that is on the street. Great acceleration, great handling, decent space for luggage. The only drawback is the firm ride which was greatly improved by changing to Yokohama Parada tires. Gas mileage is decent for this large of an engine, 16.5 mpg. I smile every time I get in it.

As a female or mother, you won't regret a minute of this vehicle. One feature it has is the Tire Monitor. I used to worry about whether or not my tires were going flat, but now all I do is push a button and it will show me how much air is in each tire. Another feature is the rear view monitor. When you put the car in reverse it turns the camera on in the rear of the vehicle so that you are sure that it's safe to back up. It's just one of the many, many features on this car that will make you smile every time you drive it. It's a no-brainer when you compare it to all the others in it's class.

A great vehicle taken down by way-out styling

The FX45 has just about everything you could want - loads of torque (0-60 in under 6 seconds from a 4.5 liter V8), amenities galore, a top-notch safety system, and Nissan/Infiniti's reputation for quality. The only function that is strangely absent from the list of standard features is cruise control, now common even on econoboxes. So what's wrong? To package all of these goodies, Infiniti took a mid-size crossover ute, perched it on oversize (20") tires and tried to give it the lines of a much smaller sports car. The result is out of proportion, with an appearance that a car-fanatic coworker described as looking as if it had been taking steroids. In tight situations the small greenhouse relative to the car's frame makes it difficult to tell where the body is (at least based on a test drive), and the heavily curved rear quarters steal considerable space from what should have been a useful cargo compartment. Admittedly first impressions can be wrong, but for a car in this class there's no reason it can't be both stylish AND functional, something Volvo achieves with its XC90, for example.
